Bristol Together Championships 

This week, a group of Year 5 pupils started their work with the Bristol Together Championship Programme. 

The Bristol Together Championships is a hugely popular programme that encourages children to connect and build friendships across the perceived divides through football. It helps community cohesion by getting boys and girls to cross the race, class, geographical and faith boundaries that characterise life in the city.

The project helps young people to grow in confidence and pride in sharing their own stories and experiences of life and disproving stereotypes. People in Bristol may famously speak 91 different languages, but the universal language of football can bring Bristol’s diverse communities together

Young Hero

The Bristol Young Heroes Awards aim to shine a light on those who have overcome difficult circumstances, made a difference to the lives of others, or achieved something extraordinary and we are very please to announce that one of our pupils has been nominated for an award!

Lily in Year 4 has been nominated for the Young Carer Award. 

Lily became a young carer about 18 months ago when her mum became unwell. She now helps her mum with multiple daily tasks including cooking, washing and cleaning! She has now been invited attend a special reception event at City hall, followed by an official award ceremony at the Bristol Harbour Hotel in July. 

We are incredibly proud of Lily and are sure you'll join us in congratulating her on this wonderful achievement! 

Parking and Dropping Off 

As you know, we have recently put a number of reminders in our newsletters, and on our Facebook page regarding parents parking inappropraitely outside of the school. 

Unfortunately, these reminders have not been effective, and improper parking has now resulted in a number of parents receiving parking tickets from our local PCSO. 

Whilst we hoped our reminders would be enough to avoid things getting to this stage, the safety of our pupils is of the utmost importance to us, and our local policing team are duty bound to act when this safety is put at risk. 

We hope that going forward, we will have to issue less of these reminders, and parents will continue to support us in keeping our children, and all pedestrians safe outside of our school. 



Doors are open for children to come in to school from 8.40am and children should be in school ready for registration by 8.50am. 

Children arriving after this will recieve late mark and those who arrive after 9.20am will recieve an unauthorise mark for the morning session. 

Not only will lateness have a negative effect on their attendance, it can also impact their learning as they are often missing important information about the day's lessons. 

Breakfast Club is available to all pupils from 8.00am (charged at £1 per day for children R-Y6 and £3 for Nursery) and is a great way to ensure children are in school  on time, and ready for the school day. 

Do you have our school app yet? 

The School Gateway app is the best (and cheapest) way to stay in touch with us here at CTK. 

Not only can it be used to book children into clubs, it's also a great messaging service. 

Text messages, whilst useful, cost us a lot of money to send and we're sure you agree, we'd rather spend our budget on more resources and opportunities for our children.  So, going forward, we're going to utilise the app more, to avoid sending as many text messages. 

If you've not yet downloaded the app, you can find it on GooglePlay and the App Store under School Gateway. Here's a handy guide to get you started....

Without the app, you might miss important information going forward, so we strongly encourage all parents to sign up - it's completely free and a great way to stay in touch!!
